UPDATED: Being Human Series 5 Air Date uk - 3 February BBC THREE 10pm - OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED!

We had our first glimpses of series 5 in a series of 'coming soon on BBC3' promo ads showing on both BBC1 and BBC3 last night. 

We await the full trailer and a release date, but last nights surprise is a good sign that these are imminent!

Excellent addition Laura, great to have a bit of insider knowledge, thank you

Yes, the dvd info seems out of place in the context of everything else..but when I asked SFX for the source they said an official BBC press release from BBC Worldwide /2entertain...one ends to believe what one's told when its the BBC!

*** Update! ***

 

We still have no exact date for Being Human Series 5 but lots of conflicting and confusing bits of info!

 

~ According to SFX magazine, a DVD promo containing the new (SPOILERY) Being Human series 5 synopsis gave a date for the DVD for 25 Februray. On that basis, it would be safe to assume an air date of January, fro a six weeks series.

~ However, BBC three are showing re-runs of Being Human Series 4 beginning this week, with what looks like 2 episodes a week - which would take us up to the week beginning 28 Jan - and presuming there will be no overlap with the start of series 5, the first Sunday /possible air date would be 3 Feb!

~ According to Insidemedietrack.com Being Human series 5 is set to air on February! 

 

Anyone placing bets?! I think we will find out this week!

Based on a bit of "insider knowledge" I'm placing bets on either Sunday 3rd or 10th Feb. I think that DVD date is wrong as my colleage is a DVD Reviews Editor and he has not had any info about BH5 DVD and there's nothing on Amazon either. If it was available in Feb, they would have been taking pre-orders by now.

My money's been on feb 3 all along.....although once I'd decided the dvd release date must be wrong, i did have a bit of a panic that feb 25 might be the air date.  That would mean that it would still be airing over Easter though (unlikely) so I'm sticking with feb 3.

Ooh... that is a thought fifi, about th dvd day actually being the air date...and would explain the confusion. I do wish we could see this supposed press release from BBC Worldwide/2 entertain where the info was originally published!

It is looking later and later, considering we still have not had the trailer yet! I am beginning to think that Cassie John (BH director Phil John's neice) may have been misinformed about the air date being end of Jan!

I'm starting to think more and more that the feb 25th date is actually the air date and they've made a mistake....

I really hope not though! I'd be happy with the 3rd of feb but I just want to know when it is gonna be now so that we can start really looking forward to it!

Ps when the series airs we should start a game on here....spot the blogger....;)haha x

I'm hoping the air date is The 3rd feb, I can't wait much longer I'm going to pop!! We normally get the show early jan so the 3rd wouldn't be too far behind that

Hi leanneloveschoc! first of all please allow me to welcome you warmly to the forum, welcome congrats on your first post, thanks for taking the leap and diving in!

The anticipation is electric for series 5! and I'm quite enjoying it!

I believe the air date for the first episode of series 4 last year was Sunday 5 February?

I was convinced we were going to get a trailer and / or air date this week! Now I am not so sure!

The SFX Magazine article published today mentions February as the air date..so this is looking likely now.

 I'm hoping it's Feb 3rd.  If it's later it's going to botch up the last paragraph of a certain article I'm working on for a magazine that's going on sale on 21st February wink

some-one, somewhere, said that last year the trailer was aired 11 days before ep one.  Seems very close to me, but if the series starts on feb 3 and the same thing happens.....then we've still got well over a week to wait for a trailer.  Although this year I feel there is more momentum?  I don't know if that's just because I'm more involved in it?  Or because no-one really knew what to expect last year?

 I agree with you. There is more momentum this time round than with Season 4.  There are More trailers, that interview on T4 last year and the spoilers in the magazines. I also feel more involved with it this year too.

ooh very cryptic Ms Laura - magazine? oooerr!

Well, we can safely say Feb now, so all our initial thoughts are out the window...I need a few weeks to prepare myself, cushioned floor may help!

Where is Matty P? I think he may know something, he sent me an interesting tweet! cooee, Matty!

Just realised I did not follow up on my last comment, and since then a few more bits of info, often conflicting about the BH S5 date have come to light!

If we are to try and make head or tale of it all, a list is called for!



1. BBC Media Centre


It turns out MattyP was referring to the scheduling info on the BBC Media Centre website. So let's take that first.
It has nothing listed for BBC three on any of the Sundays untill the end of January. But I was unde the impression the scheduling was incomplete and there were some unplaced progs, so how conclusive that is we can't be sure.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediacentre/proginfo/search/?medium=tv&channel=BBC_THREE&yearweek=&day=

 

2. SFX Magazine

Last week's SFX magazine feature said the air date is February. This is after they mentioned 25 February as the DVD release date in their Official Being Human Series 5 Synopsis

 

3. Den Of Geek


A Den Of Geek Review for Being Human Series 5 Episode 1 said, "Being Human returns to BBC Three later this month." (i.e. January)

 

4. BBC Three

Earlier this week BBC Three said on Twitter:

it's definitely coming in the Spring! #realsoonhonest!

when I questioned further:

@DMolonyForum You know we like to keep you being Human Fans guessing! ;o)

and later on:

@DMolonyForum @doesitsay @Indigo_Blues_ Awwww... we'll stop teasing with this 'Spring' business. But still no date yet!#itssoonhonest

 

5. Radio Times

The Radio Times schedules show 'TBA' for BBC Three 9pm Sunday 27 January....

http://www.radiotimes.com/tv/tv-listings#{"sd":"27-01-2013 21:00:00"}

 

6. Geektown

earlier today, geektown.co.uk gave an air date of 27 Jan, but then changed it to 3 Feb.. http://www.geektown.co.uk/tvairdates/being-human/

 

 

 

 

Phew! Lots of rumours and bits and bobs but no still no definitive answer, with so many different sources, maybe best not to draw any conclusions, but it is looking like February is most likely. We need Sherlock Hal!

Please feel free to add to this list if you come across any more rumours!

I think you might be right Lau then they should put "we are just" guessing, not be so authoritative and absolute truthist about it!

I looked up some quotes about being patient ... Got bored so I thought about Being Human's start date instead.

The page has been updated and has more info. Domino, if this is too spoilery then feel free to delete it.

"What do you get when you put a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost in a house-share in Barry? The return of Being Human!

Ghost Alex is adjusting to life after death with werewolf Tom but vampire Hal is in hell. Not because he’s chained up like an animal, but because he’s desperate to get his marigolds on the messy house.

But when Tom and Alex decide to set him free, Hal’s wracked by uncertainty…can he control his bloodlust? Things get complicated with the return of Mr Rook, the shady figure whose government department protects the world from supernaturals.

Having been fired from the café, Hal and Tom find new employment at the Barry Grand Hotel, home to poisonous pensioner Captain Hatch (Phil Davis). Unknown to our trio, his decrepit exterior hides an ancient evil that threatens not only their friendship but also the entire world.

Starring Damien Molony (Hal), Michael Socha (Tom), Kate Bracken (Kate), Phil Davis (Captain Hatch), Steven Robertson (Mr Rook), Colin Hoult (Crumb), Victoria Ross (Lady Catherine), Jeremy Swift (Emil), Clare Cage (Patsy).

KJ
Ep 1/6

Day and time to be confirmed

BBC THREE"

As it is an official BBC synopsis (not one shared by an online mag) I think it is fine to leave it up here Laura, thank you for adding
